Three Ways to Use Your Ceiling Fan in Your Phoenix Home

While many homes are equipped with ceiling fans, improper operation can actually increase your energy bill. The problem is that many individuals do not know how they should be operated to provide the greatest potential energy savings.

One of the most important things to know is that ceiling fans do no cool rooms but they can cool your body. The concept is actually simple. The movement of air causes water to evaporate from the skin sooner than when sitting in a room where air is not moving. However, moving the air in a room does not cause any cooling. Because the fan motor generates heat as it operates, ceiling fans cause a slight increase in room temperature or increase the air conditioning load. However, the cooling of the breeze on your body is typically worth the increase.

1.       Turn off the AC when a fan is sufficient. On mild days, a ceiling fan provides enough air movement to keep the body comfortable. Ceiling fans consume 97 percent less electricity than an air conditioner, making their use an obvious technique to save energy.

2.       Turn the AC thermostat to a higher setting. The natural cooling of the fan can make your body feel up to four degrees cooler than sitting in still air. In Phoenix, the difference between 90 degree and 86 degress is significant, in terms of personal comfort.  Ceiling fans give your air conditioning (and pocketbook) a much needed break during the beautiful weather of spring and fall in Phoenix.

3.       Another tip, Do not operate fans in unoccupied rooms. If the room is empty, the fan is doing absolutely no good. If no one is there to feel the fan operating at full speed and the room is unoccupied, it is just increasing the electric bill without providing any benefits.

If you leave ceiling fans operating in the home, even when rooms are occupied and do not change the operation of the AC system, you simply increase your utility costs. However, using these three tactics is a proven way to lower your power bill by as much as 15 percent.

Several years ago we purchased an air conditioner and furnace from Hobaica. Justin became our tech checking up on the system twice a year. Now that we moved Justin came out today to do our cooling/heat checkup and electrical eval. We are happy to be back on track with Hobaica and Justin.

Hobaica installed our new HVAC 2 years ago. They did a great job: professional, no mess, reasonably-priced and friendly. Today technician Danny U. came and did an inspection and maintenance. He was knowledgeable, informative and nice to work with, and as far as I can see he did a very thorough job.

Steven A came out for an AC service. He was professional and answered all questions we had. He was able to find small problems that are easy fixes before bigger problems came up. This is our first time using Hobaicas and we will continue to use them for all of our AC needs. Amazing company!!!

Scott Dale was professional & transparent. He understood the symptoms we were having with the AC unit & confirmed our issue. Scott was confident in communicating what needed to happen to solve the problem & knowledgeable in various methods to approach the solution. Not only was he respectful to our choice of repairs, he did not push an agenda & was patient with explaining the various aspect of the issue. Scott gave us the opportunity to know exactly what he found in the unit along the way & documented the condition of our unit to share openly with us. To top his service off, Scott acted with immense integrity - he had full access to the areas he needed to be successful & made the professional decisions to respect our property & get the job done well. Thanks Hobaica for quick & quality service.
